Overall survival rates for pediatric high-grade sarcoma have improved greatly in the past few decades, but prevention and treatment of distant metastasis remain the most compelling problems facing these patients. Traditional preclinical mouse models have not proven adequate to study the biology and treatment of spontaneous distant sarcoma metastasis. To… (More)
Patients with metastatic or recurrent and refractory sarcomas have a dismal prognosis. Therefore, new targeted therapies are urgently needed. This study was designed to evaluate chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells targeting the type I insulin-like growth factor receptor (IGF1R) or tyrosine kinase-like orphan receptor 1 (ROR1) molecules for their… (More)
Renal involvement is frequent in patients suffering from primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS). Tubulointerstitial infiltration is the most common renal lesion, while glomerular involvement is rare. We report the case of a 50-year-old woman with pSS who developed renal failure due to an unusual proliferative glomerulonephritis with humps and monotypic IgG1-kappa… (More)
Significant changes in % free serum E2, T and P were observed during the annual cycle of the turtle. In contrast no significant changes in SHBG affinity constants (2.29-4.48 x 10(8) M-7) were found and binding capacity for estradiol 17B was between 3.47 and 3.96 x 10(-7) M except in preovulatory animals (2.00 +/- 0.25).
